Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

The effect of the quantity of toys on toddlers’ play was studied by comparing play with four and 16 toys present. Quality of play was better with fewer toys present. Fewer toys is a recommendation occupational therapists can make to parents and teachers of young children.
